SHE'S MORE TO BE PITIED
by R.Rakes, made famous by the Stanley Brothers, Seldom Scene, etc.
charted by Christopher Rose
and Bo Frazer
[fiddle intro = last line of chorus]
She's there at the bar every evening,
Face powdered and cheeks painted red.
Her beauty has faded too early,
D G G7
Brought on by the fast life she's led.
She's more to be pitied than scolded.
She needs to be loved, not despised.
Too much beer and wine, Too many good times,
The lure of the honky-tonk wrecked her young life.
She once was the bell of the ballroom.
She'd have made some man a sweet wife,
But too many parties and the wrong kind of pals
Ruined her happy young life.
